Here in the southern lower peninsula of Michigan, we have had stifling heat and dry, dry conditions ever since spring. Lately, it has become humid and rainy. The mosquitoes are absolutely VICIOUS!
My poor kitties have bites all over the tips of their ears, but they don't want to stay inside, and fortunately, the bites don't seem to bother them at all, except for the occasional itch. I have to keep wiping the mosquitoes off my dog's face when I walk with her outside. Good thing I have them all taking a heartworm preventative!
If it weren't for walks with the critters, which we all enjoy, I wouldn't even want to step outside, because most of the time I have to drive away those nasty blood-suckers by twitching and swatting. I tried dabbing my exposed skin with essential oil of lavender, but maybe I need to get some citronella instead.
Hope it isn't so bad in YOUR neck of the woods!
